Hi Kishore

Please have a read of what you are asking. Please put yourself in our shoes and see if you could provide (valuable) advise to someone.

You have told me you don't want FICO. That does not limit it down much. You have told me you do BPO but have not mentioned what process.

If you want advise, try providing some context:

  • What is your current qualifications?
  • What SAP experience do you have (if any)?
  • What is your motivation for switching to SAP?
  • What sort of BPO work are you doing?
  • What interests do you have?
  • What are you strengths and weaknesses
  • Are you from a business, functional or technical background?
  • What research have you done relating to SAP before you ask for advise?

If you leave your question as is this is what you will receive:

  • A person working on SD functionality will jump in and tell you definately do SD module
  • Another person with SD will then respond and tell you yes SD is great but CRM is big too
  • Another person will say but HANA, Fiori, Mobility, etc are the new big items in SAP
  • Someone else will then say 'no you should to techno-functional' so you get good job (CRM and ABAP together etc)
  • Another person might then say why don't you want to do FICO - it's the backbone
  • Someone else will then say Basis is good but not security (I will then jump in and argue the case for security)

Do you see my point? You won't receive advise that is relevant to you as you have been to vague in what you are after. Without knowing your interests, ambition, goals, etc none of that advise will be helpful. All of it you could obtain via Google.

Regards

Colleen

P.S. - I hope no-one jumps in and proves my point on generalist advise as it just creates noise and is typically a bunch of links only which I then have to clean up via moderation activities.

Hello Colleen,

Thank you for your response,I am  MBA finance graduate and I had four years of experience in SAP as end user in AP and AR ,Property taxes . I have good analytic skills and committed , weakness I will take some time time to understand the things.I was in to business for couple of years. I have few friends who are working on SAP in different different module, when spoke with them I understand that there is good growth in SAP. I always wanted to Switch to IT domain but not sure which suits for me. just I am looking for current market demand Module which is having future for 7 to 10 years .

Thank you again for your response it's helped me to think

Thank you,

Hi Kishore T

At first I would say look into FICO since you have AP and AR background but you have already excluded that.

 I have few friends who are working on SAP in different different module, when spoke with them

If you have friends (who can be an established network) I would talk to them some more and see if they can step you through more information of what their speciality involves. You might learn a bit more

As you learn about the different areas, you can search and read up on them. Eventually you will find an area that sounds interesting.

 I understand that there is good growth in SAP.

Take care with this expectation. There is a work in SAP but the jobs are nowhere near as easy to obtain as a beginner/fresher. Search this forum and you will see discussions and complaints about the job market. Again, ask your friends for advise. Also, if there are not fresher level (1-2 years experience) see if they can introduce you to anyone in their workplace who just started. That person might be able to explain what they went through to obtain employment.

Good luck with your career

Hello Colleen,

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback,They are working on SAP SCM and few are with APO , SRM. They are suggesting me to go for APO or BPC , SRM since there is demand in the current market. Yeah I know it's very difficulty to get through into it, but domain where I am working is not having growth, so I got to stretch to get settle down in SAP module, off course they help in interview process. Please advise whether I would be suitable for those modules since I am MBA finance graduate..Thank you.

Thank you ,

Colleen
